Tape supplied by "US_Blues":
"I first heard this tape in the Fall of 1978 during my freshman year of college. I owned Blues for Allah and Wake of the Flood, but had never heard a grateful Dead bootleg. This FOB was my bus ticket, plain and simple. The energy of the crowd on this recording is what hooked me.
I received my copy of this tape from a friend who knew the taper's. At best my copy is a 2nd gen cassette, I recall being told the taper's were 10th row center. To my ear this recording sounds like it was made closer to the stage than the Glassberg MOTB version (an excellent recording), perhaps you'll agree.
Ultimately I wish for two things- first that you enjoy this recording as much as I have over these many years; and secondly, that a lower generation (MAC?) comes to light. FWIW- the taper's lived in/near Syosset, NY.
Many thanks to **__** and his cohorts for preparing this for circulation. I had asked for a transfer for my own listening, I am happy that this was deemed worthy enough for everyone to enjoy. -US_Blues"
